ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — They’re making bacon in so many different ways at one Atlantic City casino that you can drink and even wear it.

The Tropicana Casino and Resort’s Bacon Week includes off-beat recipes like bacon milkshakes, and chocolate-covered bacon shaped like roses.

There’s bacon bourbon, margaritas, beer and vodka; bacon ice cream sundaes, and a BLT sandwich with a full pound of bacon.

There’s even bacon-flavored toothpaste, dental floss and lip balm.

Bacon festivals are becoming more common around the country. A bacon-lovers website counted nearly 30 around the country from last April through December.
